In the last five years, policymakers have tried a series of policies to boost growth - from ultra-low interest rates to massive purchases of government debt and programmes to kick start bank lending. The latest weapon to be deployed is forward guidance, an opaque phrase for a policy which aims to convince people that interest rates will stay lower for longer.
